At 1:30 the COA will hear the workers compensation case of Robert Sheffield v. S.J. Louis Construction, Inc. and Zurich Insurance Company. Sheffield worked for S. J. Louis Construction Co. In June 2015, he was checking the load on his truck and missed a
step causing him to fall to the ground. The employer case admitted that he had sustained an injury while in the course of his employment but denied any permanent injury or loss of wage earning capacity. The AJ concluded that Sheffield sustained a 60% loss of wage earning capacity. The employer appealed and the Commission reversed the AJ’s decision and found that Sheffield had not sustained any loss of wage earning capacity as a result of his work-related injury. Sheffield appealed.
